|Why did you become a physiotherapist?|
I have always liked the idea of working in the health industry and when I found out how broad Physiotherapy is I knew it was the career for me. I love being able to help people who are sick or have some sort of impairment and then watch them to reach goals that they didn’t think they could.
In 3 lines tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a local Sydney sider; born, bred and educated.
I love summer and warm weather. Those that know me will find me at the beach during the warmer months and complaining about the cold the whole way through winter.
I LOVE to have a chat to anyone and everyone! Love listening to people’s stories and adventures.
What career would you have pursued if you didn’t do physiotherapy?
When I was younger I really wanted to be a fashion designer, but soon came to the realisation it wasn’t the job for me.
If I didn’t make it into Physiotherapy I think I would’ve gone into another area of health, possible nursing, and then worked me way to Physiotherapy.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I’m a major softie for a good book; I always have a book in my handbag (sometimes two), regardless of where I am going.
I love to be active and have a go at different types of activities. My favourite ways to stay fit include walking the dog, yoga, dance classes and pilates!
My favourite thing to do on a weekend is cook poached eggs for the family for breakfast.
What is your favourite exercise to do with your class?
I love teaching squats to people of all ages as I think it is one of the best exercises and can be regressed/progressed/varied in so many different ways.
What is your favourite food meal?
My favourite meal to eat and cook at home is pasta – I could eat it everyday and still crave it.
If you could give your clients one tip for staying healthy what would it be?
The best motivator for exercise is doing something that you enjoy. If you don’t enjoy some aspect; whether it be the people, the instructor, the environment or the exercises; you won’t keep going.
